Default Categories and Subforums

Ok, so my review forum layout goes something like this:

+-- Reviews
+----> Film
+----> Books
+----> Television

Using the categories block allows me to very easily list all the review categories.

HOWEVER, what I want to do is disable posting in the lead forum: "Reviews" but have it update all the posts from its subforums. That way, the category block would act simply as a filter to choose between which TYPE of review you wanted to read.

Is this possible to do?

Can you just do this be setting the forums settings to inactive so it doesnt accept any additional posts?

Well, the thing is, the lead forum doesn't list all the posts from it's relative child forums.

And if the only way to show categories in a general "review" section is by having sub-forums, then there will never be a general area where all reviews are posted from all "categories" or sub-forums.

I hope I'm being clear enough, it's quite hard to explain.

If I disable posting in the general section, it still doesn't solve my issue of wanting to have this general section using a review template to update all posts posted within its child forums.

I have prototyped a gars 'portal' which is what I think you are after - however it is impossible to say when it would ever be released.
